I would choose D. Reason:

THe passage suggests that least like to be audited --> those who have been audited since 1985 and were found to be filing the tax returns properly.

Hence, ppl who are most likely to be audited would be defaulters in the both or one.

(a) - this guy was audited in 1986 (later than 1985) and is clean. Hence, incorrect
(b) - this guy was audited in 1986 (later than 1985) and his FINAL tax return was proper( which was edited by his lawer, which is totally irrelevant) .Hence, incorrect
(c) - spouce is a fraud, not the person. Hence, incorrect
(d)- last audit - 1984 ( defaulter is one area)
(e) - he is as clean as it gets..incorrect

USing POE, the best option that we are left with is (D)

My Choice is D.
As:
(A) -- Audited in 1986 and was found clean.
(B) -- Final Submission of more recent report was flawless.
(C) -- Spouse should not be liable for husband's tax fraud case.
(D) -- Audited before 1985. IRS should audit to check as it's older.
(E) -- Very Clean Guy !!
